In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The qualifying learner achieving this unit standard in combination with context expertise standard(s) will be able to identify and recognize the signs, symptoms and risks associated with common illnesses, chronic diseases of lifestyle and injuries relative to physical activity and be able to describe the effects of exercise on these conditions relative to special populations. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
A learner aspiring to complete this unit standard must have been assessed competent against the following unit standards:

It is assumed that a learner wishing to enter a programme leading to this unit standard has workplace literacy and communication equivalent to NQF Level 4 and numeracy equivalent to NQF Level 3
Provide for safety and risk management in sport, fitness or recreation NQF level 5 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
Guides to the scope and complexity of the specific outcomes and essential embedded knowledge are provided in bullet points beneath each. These are prefaced by "for example" since they are neither comprehensive nor necessarily appropriate to all contexts. Alternatives must however be comparable in scope and complexity. These are intended only as a general guide to scope and complexity of what is required. 

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
Demonstrate an understanding of the implications of exercise for persons with risk factors. 
OUTCOME NOTES 
Demonstrate an understanding of the implications of exercise for persons with risk factors, for chronic diseases of lifestyle
For example:
  • Identify risks factors for diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis
  • Stages of inflammation of arthritis and when to exercise 

  • ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    When conducting assessments, assessors must ensure that they are familiar with the full text of the Unit Standards being assessed.

    They must ensure that the assessment covers the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes and essential embedded knowledge.

    As each situation is different, it will be necessary to develop assessment activities and tools, which are appropriate to the contexts in which practitioners are working. These activities and tools may include self-assessment, peer assessment, formative and summative assessment.

    The specific outcomes and essential embedded knowledge must be assessed in relation to each other. If a practitioner is able to explain the essential embedded knowledge but is unable to perform the specific outcomes, they should not be assessed as competent. Similarly, if a practitioner is able to perform the specific outcomes but is unable to explain or justify their performance in terms of the essential embedded knowledge, they should not be assessed as competent.

    METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
    Assessment should include practical demonstration of competence, either in the workplace or through work-realistic, out-of-classroom simulation.

    A range of assessment methods should be used, including:

    Direct observation - watch the practitioner carry out the task or produce a desired outcome during the course of his or her normal work under normal workplace conditions
    Product sample - examine the outcomes previously produced by the practitioner
    Simulation of a specific task - set a specific task for the practitioner to demonstrate in a simulated environment
    Questioning (verbal or written) - ask relevant questions linked to the unit standard
    Testimony - collect a portfolio of evidence from suitable people (e.g.: reports from a third party)

    Integrated assessment
    It may be more effective and efficient to assess a number of unit standards together thus reducing the overall number of assessment 'events'.
  • Consider a complete activity in the workplace (the 'whole of work' approach) and see which unit standards relate to this activity.
  • Work out how practitioners could collect evidence on a number of unit standards at the same time covering all the critical aspects of the standards
  • Ensure that commonalities that exist between a number of unit standards are captured in a way that makes sense for assessment.

    Assessing the following will ensure that the specific outcomes, essential embedded knowledge and critical-cross-field outcomes are assessed:

    Demonstrated ability to make DECISIONS about practice and to ACT accordingly:
    1. Identifies and explains risk factors associated with chronic disease and exercise (e.g. disadvantages of exercise for participants who are in the inflamed stage of rheumatoid arthritis)
    2. Explains benefits associated with exercise and chronic diseases of lifestyle (e.g. the benefits of moderate physical activity in controlling diabetes and or elevated blood pressure)
    3. Advises on the implications of exercise for participant with common illnesses and offers recommendations (e.g. participant with flu and what decisions to make about exercising)

    Demonstrated ability to learn from our actions and to ADAPT PERFORMANCE:
    4. Advises participant with an injury and adapts exercise
    5. Makes adaptations to exercise programme for participant with HIV/Aids
    6. Assesses extent of injury and refers to appropriate professional 

  • SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Advise on the implications of exercise for persons with common illnesses and conditions.
